Could this be your own resort in the suburbs?
A HOUSE with a pool that could rival the lagoon at Southbank was Queensland’s most drooled over property this week.
And it is easy to see why. Even the llamas appear to be smiling.
Located at 135 Highwood Road at The Gap, the five bedroom Colonial-style house was built by its current owners, who bought the sprawling 4.2 hectare block neighbouring the Brisbane State Forest back in 2003.

The house itself has featured in numerous design magazines, and spans two levels.
But it is outside that it smacks of the Bali feels.
There is a 150,000L resort-style, saltwater, lagoon pool complete with its own swim-up bar, and a Balinese hut for chillaxing, all framed by palms and native flora.
There is also a full-sized, floodlight-lit tennis court for smacking around a few balls between mai tais.
Back inside the house, the lower level is home to three bedrooms, a media room, rumpus, craft room and a laundry.
There is also a huge garage and plenty of storage.
Upstairs, there is a study, a guest room and a huge master bedroom with a walk-thru wardrobe, an ensuite that features a large, glass-walled dual shower, claw foot bath, toilet and double-sink and access to the deck.
Also on this floor is the open plan living spaces which feature striking timber work, arches, period ceiling lights, classic wall switches and more.
The country-style kitchen has Colonial cabinetry quartz benchtops and fixtures, complete with a butler’s pantry and sought-after.
A formal lounge-dining room, and casual dining and family areas adjoin the kitchen.
Other features include an additional two-car garage or shed, private and secure entrance gates with remote control, two huge water tanks, a VacuMaid ducted vacuum system and a Geochron World Clock in the kitchen.
